Gorgeous Sandy Beach

Either get there first or last to avoid crowds. Only accessible by boat. The kids really enjoyed the beach.

You'll to take a boat to get there but it worth. The clear and warm water asks for snorkeling. Otherwise you can stay at the beach, looking the mountains and their contrast wit the sea.

A nice beach with blue and turquoise water. You can visit the beach by a boat from Paraty. It is recommended to visit the beach off season otherwise it will be crowded.

I was impressed by the transparency of the wáter and the color as well that varies from the blu tuquoise to the a light Green. Surrounded by the Atlantic bush it is a dive into nature.

We visited this beach when in Paraty during a boat trip. Definitely a thing to do when in Paraty: hire one of the many boats available and go into the bay. Fantastic!

One of the beach stops on our half day boat trip in Paraty, water was cold maybe because it's the wrong season.

Beautiful, clean, clear warm water, snorkeling at the sides of the beach. This had it all, totally made for a memorable trip to brazil. Ive been to the hamptons, both coasts of florida, phuket, cinque Terre, california, puerto rico, outer banks, virgin islands and this was the best of all of those.

Virtually every one of the many Schooners and other day cruise boats that operate from Paraty visit Lula beach and it is easy to see why. Apart from being a beautiful spot, where jungle literally comes down to clean white sand, it is very accessible and the boats can thus moor close to shore. There is nothing there apart from... More

The beach is nice, the water is warm and you feel like you could be anywhere in the Caribbean and as far away as you can from the hustle and bustle of the big cities of Sao Paulo and Rio. I must say that the day I went, the water was not clean or clear. I don't know if this... More

Beautiful spot to hang put and enjoy the water. We went here as part of a party schooner tour. This is a regular stop for those boats.
